Luke Wright’s Silver Jubilee
Over twenty-five years, Luke Wright has built up a reputation for being one of Britain’s most popular live poets. This year he tries to celebrate his jubilee but ends up taking a deep dive into himself, throwing up questions about class, privilege and his adoption. Edinburgh Fringe smash hit.
“This is the best thing that poet Luke Wright has done, which is saying something.” ★★★★★ The Telegraph
“A winning combination of honesty, humour, ire and wonder. He is at the peak of his powers.” ★★★★★ The Stage
“Breathtaking … with a sharpness and wisdom that lifts the soul, and soothes the battered heart.” ★★★★ The Scotsman
